Lyrics

Even if a day feels too long
If you feel like you can't wait another one
And you’re slowly giving up on everything
Love is gonna find you again
Love is gonna find you,
You better be ready then

You've been kneeling in the dark for far too long
You've been praying for that spark, but it hasn't come
Well I’m calling to you please, get off the floor
Love is gonna find you once more
Love is gonna find you,
You'd better be ready then

Tethered to a bird of sorrow,
A voice that’s buried in the hollow
You've given over to self deceiving
Your prostrate bowed but not believing
You've squandered more than you could borrow
Bet your joy on all tomorrows
For the hope of some returning
While everything around you is burning

Come on, we gotta get out, get out of this mess we've made
And still for all our talk, were both so afraid
Will we leave this up to chance like we do everything?
Love is gonna find us again
Love is gonna find us,
We'd better be ready then..

Tethered to a bird of sorrow,
A voice thats buried in the hollow
You've given over to self deceiving
Your prostrate bowed but not believing
You've squandered more than you could borrow
Bet your joys on all tomorrows
For the hope of some returning
While everything around you is burning
Well I’m not leaving you here
I’m not leaving you here
I’m not leaving

I’m hanging on
